Advocacy

When it comes to making changes at the government, school board or administration level, parents are the best advocates for their children. As taxpayers and community members, parents have a real voice when it comes to advocating for changes that help children succeed in school and in life.

We are always happy to sit down with parent groups or school councils to talk about the long-term value of music education. Please contact us now at info@bandology.ca or (905) 469-6278.


There are plenty of studies and research on the benefits of music education – click here to find out more.

Music and Social Change online event on August 30 at 7pm

In collaboration with Books Arts Music Collective, join us for Music and Social Change, a virtual event about how community members can use music to invoke socio-political change and advocate for causes dear to them. Sign up HERE!

The event will feature historical and contemporary perspectives of people using music to change the world. 

Music educator Sandy Wright –  Bandology’s very own Music and Education Coordinator – will discuss how music has been used to change the fabric of society. Learn about the history of protest music and utilize a worksheet about this subject.

In addition, enjoy musical performances of pieces local musical artists have used to invoke change in their communities and participate in a roundtable discussion followed by a Q and A. 

By the end of the event, you’ll learn how you  can use music to invoke social change and have a chance to interact with the performers who have successfully used music to bring about change.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Sign up for the event HERE!
